A disturbing video recently did the rounds on social media of a 10-year-old boxer struggling to cut weight.

The video was shared by WBC president Mauricio Sulaiman who was appalled by the footage showing the young boxer in a weight-cutting suit pleading to stop and go home.

However, a man off-screen encouraged him to continue while giving him tough love at the same time.

“You want to work out and lose more weight, or do you want to do it like this?” the man said.

“Can I go home and sleep it off? I want to go cool down,” the boy replied.

“You tell this to the person you fighting. Do you know who you fighting? He watching, what you gonna tell him?” the man replied.

You can watch it below:

“This video is so disturbing! So much ignorance on weight reduction at all levels. To watch this kid suffer like this is brutal and criminal. Weight and dehydration are the cause of most if not all fatal accidents in boxing and contact sports,” said Sulaiman.

Weight cutting has been a big topic in combat sports for years and has even resulted in a few deaths.

While there have been no deaths in the UFC, fighters still struggle to reach the weight and having to do media obligations during fight week certainly doesn’t help.
